Online Estate Agents
Choosing the right online estate agents can make a huge difference to your experience in the housing market. It can mean the difference between a stress free, positive experience with a favourable outcome, versus months of worry, exasperation and less than desirable results at the end of the process.
It Needn’t Be Stressful
With delving into the property market ranked as one of the most stressful lifetime experiences, it’s understandable that many people approach this transaction with caution and anxiety. However, it needn’t be like that. By choosing a professional firm of agents such as ourselves, we can ensure that your experience in the property market is one that is worry free, time efficient and in some cases, a thoroughly enjoyable experience, topped off with a positive outcome that ensures you get the results you want.
Many of our clients attest to this and are happy to proclaim that eresidentials.co.uk are one of the best estate agents they have ever dealt with. In fact, we pride ourselves on our high rate of return business from satisfied customers. We are also especially proud of the large number of word of mouth recommendations we receive from pervious clients.
Working Hard for You
In our constant efforts to position ourselves as the best estate agents online, we strive to get the optimum results for our clients. No matter whether you are in the market to sell a million pound townhouse, or buy a one bedroom ex-council flat, you will get our full attention and complete access to our many years of industry experience, local knowledge and passion for getting the best deals possible for our clients.
Online Access, Offline Values
While many virtual estate agents believe that offering a useable website is enough to create a positive client experience, we think that is the least we can offer. Our accessible and intuitive property listing website is just the start of our efforts to deliver a favourable experience for our clients.
By combining the best qualities of the traditional high street estate agent office, with the advances in modern technology, we are able to offer a well-rounded service. By delivering a tailored service, our goal is to ensure that your individual needs are met, whether you are a landlord, a renter, have a wish to sell your property, or are in the market to make a purchase.
While your first contact with us is likely to be through this website, you can still benefit from our personal experience in the industry. Our local knowledge, years of experience at successfully marketing homes and representing buyers, is part of everything we do from our online property listings to negotiating on your behalf. Just because we are part of the growing online estate agents UK sector, it doesn’t mean our business is remote, faceless and impersonal.
Our team is varied and diverse in terms of experience and skills. However one thing binds us together and that is our constant quest for customer satisfaction. Thanks to the depth and breadth of our team’s experience and knowledge, we always have someone on hand to handle the most specific and detailed requests of clients.
Whether your criteria includes looking for a buy to let property with great yields in an upcoming area, or finding the perfect family home with access to outstanding local schools, someone on our team has just the right knowledge and experience to fulfil your expectations.
If you’ve been let down by estate agents in the past, whether online or off, we apologise on behalf of our industry and ask that you put your faith in our services and allows us to put that negative experience behind you once and for all.
Criteria for Choosing an Estate Agent
Whether you decide to let us work for you in order to get you the results you are seeking, is up to you. But to ensure you make the best decision and choose the right estate agents for you, we have put together a helpful list of criteria for weighing up your options and making a decision. Whether you go with us or not, we hope it helps you make the right choice.
Years in the Property Market
How long have they been active in the business of buying and selling property? The more experience they have, the better they can represent your interests and get you the results you want. As your agent will be negotiating on your behalf, with other experienced agents, who are also trying to get the best deal for their clients, someone who can hold their ground and fight for your interests is an essential choice.
Experience of a Downturn
Almost anyone can sell houses during the good times. On the way up, as the bubble inflates, clients are biting agents’ hands off in order to complete transactions. In these conditions houses practically sell themselves. However, in the downturn, the wheat is well and truly sorted from the chaff and only those with the best skills and knowhow can close deals and with favourable outcomes for all parties.
When selecting an online estate agent, enquire into their experience during the slower times of decreased demand, when less than positive perceptions of the property market are prevalent. Ask what extra measures they can put in place to market your home in a downturn and how they can find you a good deal when others are going out of business.
Those who have weathered the storms once can do so again. When the market picks up, they will be in an even stronger position than they were before the downturn.
Presentation and marketing abilities play a huge role in being a successful agent. The ability to generate interest in even the most challenging of properties ensures homebuyers are put in contact with properties that they might have overlooked, while also ensuring that sellers are able to move on their properties without either lengthy turnaround times or lowered asking prices.
In the world of online estate agents this is equally important. Those browsing online for properties have many websites and services competing for their attention. Being able to present homes online in the best possible way, both visually and in the descriptions crafted, can make the difference between someone overlooking a property and taking the action of registering their interest.
A good website is more than just one that looks nice. Usability is a key factor. Choosing an online estate agent with a website that works on a range of devices such as smartphones and tablets is a good idea. This ensures you will be able to keep up to date with the latest listings while away from home or work.
Questions to Ask Prospective Agents
Once you’ve made your shortlist of prospective agents who could potentially be representing you in your forthcoming transaction, it’s good to ask them some questions to get further information about them to help you make your final choice. Whether you meet them in person or communicate via email, seeking this information is highly recommended:
- How long has the agency been in business?
- What level of experience do the agents themselves have?
- What is the average time on market for a property they are advertising?
- How long does it take on average to wrap up a sale from making or receiving an offer to exchanging contracts?
- What industry bodies and regulators are they members of?
- What is their pricing structure? Is it a flat fee up front or commission on the sale once the deal is done?
These are all questions we are happy to answer and any other reputable agent will also be happy to answer them.
Hopefully the information in this guide on choosing an agent can help you make the right choice. We are happy to demonstrate our abilities and results in any of the above areas so do not hesitate to get in touch and start your search for an agent off on the right path.
Picking the best online estate agent needn’t be a difficult task and by doing your homework and due diligence you can find the perfect match for your transaction.
